Second-baseman Roberto Alomar and pitcher Bert Blyleven were both elected to the Hall of Fame by the Baseball Writers Association of America today. They will join Pat Gillick in 2011's induction ceremony. I've already sent out an autograph request to Alomar, but I may try through the Hall of Fame this time to see if that works better. Blyleven has charged for his autograph for years, but I may as well try sending him an autograph request through the Hall of Fame too.
There are certainly a few players on this ballot I would have voted in if I had that power, but alas, that is not how the system works.
Congrats once again to these two great players. ESPN's press release can be read right here.
